Survey workflow can be as unique as the person creating the survey. Sometimes you’re logged in to Polldaddy.com, clicking on new elements to add to your survey and typing in answer options as they come to mind.

Did you know that you can use the Plain Editor feature to paste in multiple choice answer options, allowing you to create your survey more quickly?
